Flexitech has sites in 7 different countries to ensure we are close to our customers and can maintain agile design and manufacturing processes with controlled costs and short lead-times. Our head office is in Saint-Etienne, France, near to Lyon.
One thing that sets Flexitech apart is that Flexitech is the only global brake hose supplier that has at least one factory in each of the 4 main automotive regions: Europe, Asia, North America and South America. This local presence supports our ability to develop products and solutions that meet our customers’ requirements.
Flexitech has 3 sites in France:
Montrond les Bains: the group’s historical site which contains a brake hose assembly plant and a complete test laboratory.
Panissières: opened in 2001, this site produces hoses to be fitted in European factories.
Saint-Just-Saint-Rambert: the company’s head office, which also houses the Research and Innovation and Customer-projects departments, as well as the company’s support activity departments (Sales, Purchasing, IT, Finance, HR).
In Wuxi, a city close to Shanghai, the hose manufacturing and assembly plant was opened in 2016. It contains a complete test laboratory and the best human resources for engineering, project and sales management.
In 2021, Flexitech acquired BHP, one of the European leaders in OEM brake hose and shock absorber hose spare parts. The company is based in Pinerolo, close to Turin, and has extensive know-how, organisation and production equipment dedicated to this market.
